On Nov. 30, Mazda announced enhancements to the Mazda CX-5 crossover SUV. All 2022 CX-5 models will have standard i-Activ all-wheel drive in the U.S. when they arrive in dealerships across the U.S. this winter.

Mazda says the CX-5 is the brand’s best-selling vehicle in the U.S. Under the automaker's latest generation Kodo design ethos, the CX-5 features refined front and rear ends, reflective body surfaces, a new front bumper, and new signature wing that extends outward from the front grille, which is updated with a three-dimensional texture. The rear features new bumper and tailgate designs with larger dual tailpipes. The headlights and taillights receive design changes, too, with each lamp featuring a pair of horizontally spaced, rectangular LED lights.

The company says the driving dynamics and ride quality of the 2022 CX-5 have evolved with updates to the seats, body, and suspension that were introduced in Mazda’s recent vehicles. The seats are redesigned to help provide the driver and passengers with greater stability and smooth acceleration with a responsive six-speed automatic transmission. Updates to the suspension include improvements to the dampening control structure and increased frame rigidity to suppress vibrations and reduce road noise.

The CX-5 trim nomenclature has been updated as well.
